MSPC Preschool Play Dough Recipe

Here’s a recipe to make your own play dough, and save some money.  It’s a terrific recipe- not sticky, easy to make, and completely edible.

It comes from Middle Smithfield Presbyterian Church Preschool in Marshalls Creek, PA, which also happens to be a great place to be a kid.


3 cups flour

1/2 cup salt

2 cups boiling water

2 envelopes Kool-Aid

3 Tablespoons oil


Combine the flour, salt, and Kool-Aid in a bowl.  Add the boiling water, and then the oil.

Carefully stir with a wooden spoon, and then when it cools, your hands.  Store in a covered container or Ziploc bag.
